Membership of the Friends is open to all. The annual subscription is just £15 (or £18 if paying by cheque), for which you will receive:
- advance booking privileges and discounts on some of our short courses and workshops
- invitations to sign up for exclusive Friends workshops with local artists
- invitations to Friends events, usually a lecture by one of the School’s tutors on a specialist subject, or a talk by a guest speaker (these events are ticketed at a reasonable price, and you are welcome to bring guests)
- invitations to the special Previews (together with the Patrons*) of our Christmas and Summer Exhibitions, giving you the opportunity to see and buy work in a less busy environment, before the crowds arrive!
- discounts at selected Edinburgh art shops
- the opportunity to meet other Friends, and enjoy a sense of belonging to the School
The Friends are at the heart of the community that supports the School. Leith School of Art is a charity and we receive no public funding. As a Friend, you will help raise vital funds for the School’s Assisted Places scheme, which enables students with artistic potential to join our courses, regardless of their financial circumstances.
If you would like to support Leith School of Art by becoming a Friend, please contact the School on 0131 554 5761 or email: Friends@LeithSchoolofArt.co.uk.
